Balance and Stability

Balance and Stability

I enjoy walking nearby trails during the warmer months, but I’ve always found it difficult and challenging to walk on colder and snowy days because of my health issues; for that reason I stopped going for walks when winter comes. Last winter we had heavy snow and the scenery – even looking from the window […]
Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Alzheimer’s disease involves a loss of memory, and of other aspects of cognitive functioning.  Frequently, emotional well-being is also affected.  These changes are profoundly life changing both for the person with Alzheimer’s, and for their family. Worldwide, at least 44 million people are living with some form of dementia.  Regular physical activity and social interaction […]
Bol de soupe / Bowl of soup

Bol de soupe / Bowl of soup

J’associe la pratique des arts Tai Chi Taoïste® à manger un bol de soupe. Je sens que cela nourrit littéralement mon corps. J’ai aussi parfois l’impression que c’est comme partager un bon repas avec des amis. Je me sens rempli et détendu. I think of Taoist Tai Chi® practice like eating a bowl of soup. […]
A path of balance

A path of balance

Eighteen years ago I began Taoist Tai Chi® practice with the goal of improving my physical well being. Tai chi was recommended to me as an exercise I could attempt even though I was extremely ill with a progressive liver disease and the many associated symptoms caused by a failing liver. I had no idea […]

A New Body

A New Body

I am so thankful to Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism™ every day.  I had both of my hips replaced 10+ years ago and last summer I was up on the cottage roof laying down new shingles.  What I have discovered over the years is that the surgeries removed the damaged and painful surfaces, but […]
Keeping Balance at 93

Keeping Balance at 93

I am 93 years old.  Twelve years ago, I was having a difficult time dealing with the passing of my wife.  My daughter suggested I try tai chi.  She thought the exercise, and getting out and meeting new people, would help me deal with the grief. I found the Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism […]
Osteoporosis Awareness Month

Osteoporosis Awareness Month

At 56, when I had been practicing the Taoist Tai Chi® arts for 6 months, I had a baseline bone density test. I’m now 66 and my doctor ordered a new test. As we age, we can expect to see a decrease in bone density. I was very pleased with my results: my bone density […]
World Stroke Day

World Stroke Day

14 years ago I had 9 strokes.  I couldn’t stand, walk, talk, see or eat.  I had to start all over again. My Taoist Tai Chi®  practice has helped me to build balance and strength, to lose fear and to do all the functions of life. It has given me my life back!~ Sasha
Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness

I’ve had breast cancer twice; once before I began practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts and once after. The first time, I had difficulty with tightness and scarring, which made it difficult to move. When my cancer came back the second time, my recovery was much quicker because practicing the Taoist Tai Chi® arts kept me […]
Music and Jongs

Music and Jongs

I am a professional musician and Taoist Tai Chi® practice keeps me in shape physically. It helps me not get injured, keeps me elastic, and somehow keeps my body working even if I’m nervous. The hand movements are particularly good for my playing. This is all very important for me.  ~Oren
A practice for life

A practice for life

All generations benefit from the age-friendly activities of Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism. Seniors make key contributions to our community finding renewal, joy, growth & connection. Engaging in Taoist Tai Chi® arts leads to a feeling of internal stillness balanced with an outward expansion. Irrespective of one’s age, there is a progressively deeper connection to […]
World Heart Day

World Heart Day

I had a 97% blocked aortic artery. My Taoist Tai ChiⓇ practice helped me mentally, to find the calmness to prepare for the surgery. The physical practice kept me moving well so I’d have the best outcome. Then after the surgery I was out of the hospital faster than many people much younger than me! […]
Arthritis Awareness

Arthritis Awareness

My arthritis is called ankylosing spondylitis and it affects my spine. When the inflammation is happening, it’s very painful.  
 I’ve been doing Taoist Tai Chi® arts ever since I was first diagnosed, and that’s what I mostly use to manage the pain.  It keeps me moving … and if I don’t move, I seize up. […]
Posture

Posture

Lorsque je prépare le repas, j’applique les principes enseignés dans les arts Tai Chi Taoïste®. Je garde la posture de mon corps alignée, droit, ce qui permet à mon thorax d’être ouvert et à mes épaules d’être détendues. Ce simple détail fait disparaître mon mal de dos. When I prepare meals, I apply the principles […]
